Well, now I’ve got to sit down and figure out which of the three themes will work. The break-down:
- AquaTheme – Definitely original. Not too hard on the eyes. Nice, mute colors.
- Black-n-Blue – The fastest theme I have. It downloads in three seconds compared to the others, which take ten to fifteen. The white text on the black background strains the eyes, though.
- Blue-Green – A nice, concise theme. It takes a little while to load, but it has some nice gradients and colors.
I want the content to be king of the blog, not the colors or the theme. Actually, the perfect theme for me is one that visitors don’t even notice. Currently, that seems to me to be the Black-n-Blue theme. However, eye-strain is a big issue, and white-on-black text does strain the eyes. Comments, suggestions, insults, money? I’ll take them all now if anyone has any to give.
From impending pressure of the Web 2.0, Website Optimization, and general gut feeling, I’ve changed my blog template. Every time a blog owner changes his/her template, I groan inwardly. I always think, “Well, that’s fine Charley-Bob, but what’s wrong with the old one!?” Except I don’t really think those exact words, because the owner’s name might not be Charley-Bob. Regardless, you get the gist. Since I don’t really read my blog much, my opinion on my theme doesn’t really count much. So, general opinion will decide.
This week, I will be putting out at least three new themes to try them out. Feel free to give any feedback whatsoever. Actually, if you want to pretend that I am a psychiatrist and you are sitting on a couch saying whatever comes to your mind, go right ahead. Just remember that I don’t have a Ph. D. in psychiatry, so I won’t be much of a help thataways.
As for my own ideas, I’ll save them until Theme Week® is over. Until then… 10-4.
